FiveStars

Note: This contains content that may be triggering for some people (depression, talk of suicide, animal death, and a non-graphic scene of suicide attempt).

This was very definitely not at all what I was expecting. Normally, if I see a book tagged as MMF, I assume it’s probably going to have erotic content, which maybe says a lot about how I’m obviously stereotyping. This story had absolutely no erotic content, and I found it honestly refreshing to read.

Despite the premise (angels protecting a woman from suicide), this was actually cute, sweet, and funny. I loved how the author used humor to open up frank talk about some very real things experienced by bisexual people and those who have mental health needs. Samantha is probably one of my favorite characters, and I could read a whole novel just about her.

Eli and Adam were very sweet, and I liked their chemistry. Since it wasn’t an erotic story, I was okay with the fairly quick pacing of how they all sort of fell for each other. It’s probably the idealist in me, but I found the whole thing heartwarming and like sharing a hug with friends. I know the story was complete, but I would really like to revisit their world. It seems like the three of them could have some terrific adventures ahead of them, maybe helping others like Samantha.

The only thing I wasn’t fond of was that I thought this could have used some tighter editing. Sometimes it felt more like a bit of info-dump, and occasionally it seemed like there were words missing or things were oddly phrased. The end felt a bit rushed and full of explanations that didn’t quite hold together for me.

That said, this is proof that even with a few jagged edges, a great story and characters can overcome a lot. So I’m still giving this a high rating, and I definitely hope to read more from Ms. Rabig.

This story was short and sweet.  There was not much heat or chemistry, but if you’re looking for a YA romance, just starting out, then this is the story for you.
You have Eli and Adam who have been sent to help Sam.  In the beginning, you don’t quite know why they are there, only that they are there to help.  Once everything comes to light, you not only have what Sam is struggling with, but also what Eli is struggling with.
There is a sweetness to this story, but overall, this story is not even really a romance.  I don’t quite know what I would categorize it as, other than young adult.
Also, then you don’t get to see anything evolve.  The story just ends kind of abruptly.

4 and 3 Stars for The Stowaway (Journey of the Wyvern #1) by Jade Archer #MFM

Cover

Title: The Stowaway (Journey of the Wyvern #1)
Author Name & Publisher: Jade Archer (Pride Publishing)
Publication Date & Length: August 8, 2011 – 91 pgs

Synopsis

Can one small stowaway teach two hardened warriors a lesson in life and love?

Arek and Devlynn were once part of one of the most vicious gangs of pirates in the galaxy – The Fennrus Group. But when Arek’s little brother was killed trying to follow in Arek’s footsteps, Arek quit. He walked away. And Devlynn went with him – having been devoted to the man since they were children. Unfortunately, no one leaves the Fennrus Group. Not and lives to tell the tale anyway. Forced to lay low if they are to survive, Arek and Devlynn find themselves doing supply runs between the most isolated agricultural communities in the galaxy just to scrape by. Which is how they find themselves with one small, feisty stowaway.

Having recently turned twenty-three, Rachel is faced with what she considers the ultimate enslavement – arranged marriage to two brothers from the neighbouring farming settlement of Thebia 3. So, when she sees an opportunity to escape while waiting from her intended grooms at the local space port she seizes it with both hands. She wants freedom, adventure, the chance to visit every star in the night sky. What she gets is two stubborn, difficult, although admittedly gorgeous, ex-pirates with a temperamental space transport, a vicious past out to get them and little to no idea what to do with the feelings that simmer below the surface between them.

Life with Arek and Devlynn is certain to be an adventure, provided they all survive long enough to enjoy it and Rachel can work a little magic that is.

Arek and Devlynn have been traveling for years together. They fled their home planet and have been trying to make it on their own.  Arek has had a loss of family, Devlynn wants to keep his feelings for Arek to himself.  They are doing a fairly good job of being friends and only friends until Rachel falls in to their lives.
Rachel is a spunky, holds no bar, tells it how it is woman who wants to see the world.
Together, they make a lusty, explosive group.  They complement each other and discover parts of each other that they only fantasized about.
This was very quick read, but it was full of emotion and love.  It was a story about this trio – with very little outside forces coming in to the story.
I am unsure what is going to come of more books to come, as this story seems fairly complete, but we shall see.

Okay, first off, I’m glad I got to read this free because buying this book for the price listed on Amazon is nuts. $6.13? Really? That’s pretty high for a book that’s like 91 pages. it says 91 on the listing but it seemed even less than that when I was reading. The fair price would have been $2.99 at most. Unless this author is SO popular that the Publisher thought that her e-books are instantly over $5.00.
Anyway, the story itself was just on “okay” for me. It’s about a tomboy named Rachel who was to marry 2 men to honor her family and grow up to be a stay at home mother. Well, she didn’t like that very much and ran away. She hid in a ship getting ready to leave her planet and meets the captain, Arek and his second in command, Dev.
Dev’s been in love with Arek for years and Arek has felt the same, but neither ever told each other of their feelings until Rachel stepped into the picture. This story was very fast paste. After Rachel gets discovered, the story is fast forwarded to 1 week later where Dev and Arek are already in love with Rachel. I dislike fast forwards like this because I wanna read why Dev and Arek fell for her and how. I don’t wanna be just told.
Honestly, even though I liked Rachel, it felt like she was a 3rd wheel. Maybe cause I was more interested in Dev and Arek’s story. lol. They said they loved her, but I feel like they could have been together without her. I didn’t read enough interactions between the 3 of them to be convinced otherwise. See, sometimes fast forwarding a story is a bad idea. The readers miss out on a lot, unless it’s done well. Dev and Arek pushed it from being a 2 STARS to 3 STARS. They were hot together and I saw so much potential for their love story. I think this is a series…not sure if I’ll be reading the next book soon

TWO 4s and a 3 Star Review for Circling Back by Amanda Young #MMF

Circling Back

Title: Circling Back
Author Name & Publisher: Amanda Young
Publication Date & Length: August 2015 – 165 pgs

Synopsis

Stella fled home at seventeen with a broken heart, an unplanned pregnancy, and a vow never to look back. Twenty years later, she has a career she enjoys and a solid relationship with the child she placed for open adoption. When that child goes in search of her birth father and calls for assistance, Stella is forced to return to her hometown and face the men who broke her heart, one of whom fathered her child.

Gavin and Holden raised a lot of hell as teenagers. They broke the law, broke their mother’s hearts, and almost broke each other before they finally got their act together. Through all the ups and downs, they stuck by each other and managed to build a happy life together. The one thing they couldn’t do was forget the woman they’d loved and lost.

Forced to face the past and each other after so many years is no small feat. The trio does their best to make amends and put the past behind them while forging new bonds. Old feelings are rekindled and new emotions emerge from the ashes of their youthful indiscretions. Something remarkable could be on the horizon if they’re strong enough to navigate the pitfalls of a triad relationship and stand strong against the outside forces conspiring to bring them to their knees.

FourStars

This was my first book book to read by Amanda Young.  I enjoyed her style of writing.  The story read fast and flowed well.  A cute love story of 2nd chances.

I thought the chemistry was good between Holden, Gavin and Stella, it seemed they could just take off where they left their relationship years back. The sex between the three was quite steamy.  I would have liked a little more about Mae, there really wasn’t much development of her character.

I did think it was a good read and will look to read more by this author.

FourStars

Let me start out by saying that I enjoyed the story so much, that I bumped the star rating up by 1.  However, this book needs editing.  There are so many incorrect words and misspellings, I actually thought to myself whether or not this had been edited at all.  I found it distracting.

As for the actual content, it was a great, sweet story.  I liked the fact that the story did not really dwell on the past, it was more about the right here and now.  I really liked Stella’s character and how she was able to put her own issues aside to help her daughter, Mae.

Then you have Holden and Gavin.  Even before they knew what type of love they were looking for, they had found it in each other.  But, young love is confusing and not always easy.  I enjoyed how they had their own relationship, their own lives and supported each other wholeheartedly.

The chemistry between all three of them is steamy and I liked how realistic their relationship seemed.  The mystery was not so much a mystery.  I wish we would have heard more about the co-worker that Holden had and about Mae and the relationship between her and Stella, Holden and Gavin, but I understand that this was a story about the three of them.

I enjoyed that you also got to see the relationship between Holden and Gavin, separate from their relationship between them and Stella.  It was nice that their relationship did not get lost in the shuffle.

Overall, like I said in the beginning, I enjoyed this story.  It just needs a little more editing and it will be perfect.

I felt like I was missing something with this book. It had a neat little 2nd chances spin to it though.
There was an interesting dynamic between the three of the main characters. The men lived as a married gay couple, but once Stella comes back, they are only with her, which I didn’t care for. It was never the two men together and her with them. They always were there to please her, which wouldn’t work long term, not in most relationships anyway.
I have to say the plot was predictable and I saw every ‘surprise’ coming, however, I did like the author’s style. It is what kept me reading through quite a few silly (and awkward) statements that weren’t meant to be funny.
I’d likely try another book from this author in the hopes that it was just this book that didn’t quite work for me because the writing style was so good.

Excerpt

The rest of June and July flew by at the speed of light. The three of them managed to alternate weekend visits and video chat with each other a couple of times a week. Even so, it was never enough. Stella was always left wanting more. More hugs. More kisses. More time. The longer she spent with them, the worse leaving became.

To make matters worse, she’d been scatterbrained as hell at work, which wasn’t like her at all. On Mondays she dragged her tired ass into work regardless of how much she wanted to sleep. Fridays were no better because the weekend was right there, so close she could touch it, and she couldn’t concentrate on anything else. In the time between, she slept poorly and dreamed of someone finally inventing a transporter that could beam people back and forth across long distances. Something like that would make her life so much simpler.

Her boss was starting to look at her funny. Marion, one of the other partner’s assistants, had asked if she was feeling all right after she forgot Thursday was her day to bring in donuts for the break room. She’d never missed a turn. Not even when she’d had the flu and dragged her ass in to work sick as a dog.

Being with Holden and Gavin was driving her mad. Mad with desire when she was with them; mad with impatience when they were apart. In their arms, she felt beautiful and desirable—two things she hadn’t experienced nearly enough in her lifetime. They reminded her that there was more to being a woman than complicated beauty regimens and menstrual cycles. In return, she discovered a need deep within herself to please them and insure their happiness. The only problem with that lie in the fact that they lived so far apart.

Stella darted around her apartment, straightening up the clutter that had accumulated all week. A glance at the clock on the wall warned her to pick up her pace because Holden and Gavin were supposed to arrive any minute. It was their weekend at her place and she was running behind schedule—which seemed to be the case more often than not lately.

The doorbell rang just as she shoved the last of the dirty towels into the bathroom hamper. Swiping the tendrils of hair that escaped her braid away from her face, she hurried to the door and yanked it open. “I’m so glad you’re both here.” She leaned out the door and looked beyond Gavin. “Where’s Holden?”

“Wow. Way to make a boy feel like chopped liver,” Gavin deadpanned.

“Oh hush.” Stella ushered Gavin inside and closed the door. “You know I’m thrilled to see you. I was just expecting you both.”

“I know.” Gavin sighed. “Holden really wanted to be here, but he’s behind at the shop and just couldn’t afford to close down tomorrow. He said to send his regrets and tell you he’d make it up to you next weekend.”

“Oh. Okay. Well, that’s understandable.” It sucked, but work was a fact of life they couldn’t avoid.

Gavin must have heard the disappointment in her voice, because he frowned. “If it makes you feel any better, he was pouting like a champ when I left.”

“That does make me feel better and, oddly enough, a little guilty.” Stella walked over to the couch and sat down.

“Guilty?” Gavin followed and sat beside her. “For what?”

Stella grinned, feeling playful and wicked. She lifted up and flipped around, straddling Gavin’s lap. “I feel bad that Holden’s going to miss out on watching all the dirty, dirty things I’m planning to do to his husband this weekend.”

“Oh really?” Gavin asked, grabbing two handfuls of her ass. “Do tell.”

Stella leaned in, breathed in the familiar scent of cologne, testosterone, and male musk, and kissed her way up his neck. “I’d much rather show you.”

Excerpt

She glanced at Gavin and found his gaze headed south of her lower back. “See something you like?”

“I see something I love.” Gavin moved in close behind her and ran the outside of his thumb down her bare arm. “I love every inch of your beautiful body, from your beautiful, long hair all the way to your cute little toes.”

Stella basked in Gavin’s admiration. “That’s good to know.”

“You could make yourself more comfortable and let me express my regards for your many, many charms.” Gavin nuzzled the curve of her throat and pressed his warm lips against the sensitive skin beneath her ear.

The sensual touch sent a shiver down Stella’s spine and made her nipples tighten in anticipation of taking Gavin up on his offer. “I really wish you could.”

“We can.” Gavin pulled her ear lobe into his mouth, nibbled, and released it.

“We really can’t. Holden and Mae will both here soon.”

Gavin slid an arm around her waist and pulled her back tight against him. “We could be quick.”

Stella could feel the long, stiff length of him pressed against her bottom. She closed her eyes and prayed for the strength to resist. “You’ll just have to be patient and wait until tonight.”

Gavin groaned. “You’re so mean to me.”

Stella couldn’t help but laugh. She turned and wrapped her arms around Gavin’s neck. “You pitiful, pitiful man. Would a kiss make you feel better?”

“That might tide me over until later as long as it’s a good one.”

“I think I can meet your needs.” Stella brushed her fingers through the soft hair at Gavin’s nape and pulled him down to meet her as she lifted up and glided her lips over his. She kept the caresses soft for the first few passes and then pressed up a little harder and licked across Gavin’s lower lip. The tip of Gavin’s tongue met her own and flicked back and forth, taunting her into giving chase and deepening the kiss. Gavin’s mouth tasted sweet and minty, like he’d ate a piece of candy right before she’d arrived.

Delicious.

Something banged in another room and then Holden’s voice called out. “Honey, I’m home.”

Gavin retreated and opened his eyes. He smiled at Stella. “Looks like we’ll have to pick this up later.”

Stella blinked up at Gavin. “Yeah. Later.” Definitely later. She could hardly wait. All she’d had was a little taste of what being with them was like. She couldn’t wait to discover what else they had in store for her.

With that thought in mind, she trailed back down the hall behind Gavin. He rounded the corner ahead of her and she heard his breath catch a second before her gaze landed on Holden and the spectacular bruise blossoming across his right cheekbone.

“Jesus fuck,” Gavin exclaimed. “What happened to your face?”

“Are you okay?” Stella asked, walking forward. “Did someone hit you?”

“Tell us what happened.” Gavin cupped Holden’s jaw in both hands.

“I got to meet Joanna’s ex. It was a real pleasure, let me tell you.”

“And he punched you?” Gavin asked.

It took Stella a moment to place the name as the guy’s old shop steward. “Why would her ex assault you?”

Holden shook his head. “He thinks I’m hiding Joanna from him or some shit.”

Gavin pushed Holden’s chin up and to the side, inspecting him. “Is this the worst of it or is there more hiding under your clothes?”

Holden caught Gavin’s hands and held them trapped within his own. “I’m fine. He caught me by surprise when I was leaving, shoved me into the building, and got off one sucker punch. Believe me, he looks worse than I do.”

“That’s better than nothing, I guess.” Gavin looked down at their clasped hands.

“Your knuckles are a mess. Go wash up and I’ll come in and put some antiseptic on them.”

“Yes, Mom.” Holden brought Gavin’s hands up to his mouth, kissed, and released them. He stopped next to Stella and smiled at her. “Hey, pretty lady. I’m glad you’re here. Just let me scrub off the day and I’ll greet you properly.”

“Go look after yourself. I’ll be here when you’re finished.” Stella patted him on the butt.

“Hey now,” Holden said. “No getting fresh until I can do something about it.”

Stella grinned at him. “Don’t worry. There’s a lot more where that came from.”

“I’ll hold you to that,” Holden said over his shoulder as he walked out of the room.

Oh wow.. What a great way to start a book.. I love love loved the train scene….. and then came our first lovely surprise.
After Bea is rescued I found her to be a bit…. annoying. She questioned herself so many times about seeing the men and the wolves and knowing but not acknowledging that they were one and the same. I really just wanted her to come out and ask or say what was on her mind instead of hiding it.
I felt totally and completely heartbroken with her… until she kissed Caleb. Sadly, it didn’t work for me. I felt betrayed. Until later when she better explains herself and then I was like OH… that makes more sense, but up until that point I felt like WTF?!
I have to say all in all it was a great story and it was nice to change it from MFM to MMF for a bit and see another happy in love couple willing to take care of someone in need.
While not my favorite book Lily has written, certainly won’t stop me from picking up any of her other books in the future.

I’ve read quite a few Lily Harlem books… Loved everyone of them…. however, this is my first paranormal book of hers that I read so I was a bit on edge at how it would go over.
However, she blew me away again. I absolutely loved the way we are introduced to Aimery and Ryle. Sexy, Scary Vamps…The progression of their relationship was enticing and believable. I was glad to find out what happened to Denny, but I can’t help feeling a bit angry at him for doing what he did to Bea even after he gave his explanation.
I actually really enjoyed most of the book except I felt like some things were rushed and unexplained… Like do they eat, sleep, drink to survive or simply pleasure? And at the end of the book I felt like we went from a nice steady pace to BOOM so much had happened and I was left a bit in shock and trying to catch up with where they were and what had gotten them there.
On to the second book because I need to know what the evil witch is up to!

4.5 and 3.5 Stars for Owned Forever by Willa Edwards #Menage #Romance @Totally_Bound

1

Title: Owned Forever
Author Name & Publisher: Willa Edwards (Totally Bound Publishing)
Publication Date & Length: June 23, 2015 – 113 pgs

Synopsis

Two sets of in-laws, a Dom with the need to assert his power, a fiancée with an inferiority complex and a country chic wedding to throw. What could go wrong?

For the last six months, Kate, Daniel and Grant have been living blissfully in Colorado. But that’s all about to come to an end. They’re opening up the ranch and their relationship to outsiders—Kate’s parents. While her future mother-in-law has adapted well to their unconventional relationship, Kate knows her parents won’t feel the same. At her insistence, the whole Farrell crew agrees to keep the true nature of their relationship a secret—at least from her parents—for the whole wedding weekend.

Stretched thin, Kate tries to be everything for everyone. The enthusiastic bride, the good daughter, the diligent sub that’s always under the control of her Master and the affectionate fiancé that wants nothing more than to be married. But with everyone’s needs weighing her down, eventually Kate snaps under the pressure.
In one quick moment of need, their secret is out of bag, and it’s not just her parents that feel betrayed. Can Kate convince all the people she loves to accept and participate in this untraditional wedding party, or will her needs doom her relationships for good?
Who knew Happily Ever After would be this hard!

Publisher’s Note: This story is a continuation of Kate, Grant and Daniel’s relationship from Owned For Christmas by Willa Edwards. It is best read in sequence but can be read as a standalone.

Daniel, Grant and Kate…. I love these characters.  They have such a strong relationship and even though there are rocky times, they stand together.I wanted to hit all of them at some point in this story.  Kate, who is usually so strong, I wanted her so much to yell and scream.  But, she stayed so timid.  Daniel and Grant each had their own insecurities throughout this story and it was good to see that they each wondered how this relationship was going to work – not really whether it was, but how.

This book had great chemistry for me – they all three fit each others desires and needs.  They were willing to work with each other rather than demand.

I love Willa’s books and this one was no different.

While this book did OKAY as a standalone, I really wish I had read the book prior to it because for me I felt like I was missing bits of the story.
Everyone is running on hot and tense because of the upcoming wedding between Daniel and Kate and the arrival of her very judgmental family.
I connected the most with Daniel. While i thought the scenes between Kate and Grant were hot, I also felt like Daniel was left out and no consideration was given toward him. All the scenes were BDSM and he didn’t like that type stuff, but no one stopped to care about that, even Kate. The menage has a lot to work through and I think they were trying but even at the end I felt like it was still based mostly on Kate and Grant and Daniel just sort of got to play along too.
The whole situation with her mother and what ends up happening between them I didn’t feel was sincere, not after all the nasty things the woman had said before.
I will say that the naughty scenes were hot as hell and that alone makes me want to pick up more of this author’s work, and I think the whole disconnect for me might have came from missing what had happened in the first book.
